If I’m posting this in the wrong thread, I apologize I wasn’t sure where to post this. I looked through the Tournaments section and saw only posts promoting tournaments (which I will be doing). If you could point me in the right direction I’d appreciate it.
Anyway, I was asked to provide commentary for a fighting game tournament coming up in January. The hosts want me to commentate because they think I’m funny so they apparently want me to provide color commentary. Throwing in a joke every now and then isn’t going to be a problem however I’d like to at least sound like I know what I’m talking about as far as the games go too, especially since the whole tourney’s gonna be streamed.
The games I’m being asked to commentate for are Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 (which I play a little) and Mortal Kombat (which I don’t play at all). So when it comes to actual gameplay commentary it’s not going to help that one of the commentators (me) aren’t going to have anything to say.
I’m sure that if I read the strategy guides and read the boards that focus on these games on this site I can obtain a general knowledge of the technical stuff of the games but is there anything else I can do to ensure I’ll know what I’m talking about when it comes time to commentate?
All help is appreciated.
